An Analysis Of Women And Terrorism: Perpetrators, Victims, Both?, Elizabeth Lauren Miller

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This paper will analyze women’s participation in terrorism under groups like al-Qaeda and the Islamic State. It will research the use of violence within terrorist organizations, perpetrated by female participants. What leads women to join groups like the Islamic State? There will be an analysis of the factors that attract women to joining terrorist organizations, in addition to the practices of recruitment that aid in their radicalization. There is a misconception that women who join the Islamic State lack education, which is seen as the sole reasoning for their radicalization or involvement. In reality, several reasons exist leading to ...


From The Unspoken To The Verbalized: Different Ways Of Communication And Their Relationship To Culture In A Traditional Lakota Narrative "Ikto Na Wičhá Ha Kiŋ”, Or “Ikto And The Racoon Skin”, Liliana R. Boladz-Nekipelov 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

From The Unspoken To The Verbalized: Different Ways Of Communication And Their Relationship To Culture In A Traditional Lakota Narrative "Ikto Na Wičhá Ha Kiŋ”, Or “Ikto And The Racoon Skin”, Liliana R. Boladz-Nekipelov

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This master’s thesis is a discourse analysis of a traditional Lakota story, " Iktó na wičhá ha kiŋ”, or “Ikto and the Racoon Skin”, one of the 64 stories included in the “Dakota Texts”, which were collected by Ella Deloria at three Lakota reservations in 1930s as a part of Franz Boas’ language documentation project. The thesis is also an attempt to examine different communicative strategies employed within the narrative and their relationship to culture, as well as the relationship between form and the transfer of meaning and culture and meaning. The analysis is conducted using Dell Hymes’ ethnographic approach ...


The Guinea-Bissau Constitutional Reform Debate, Watson Aila Gomes 2020 The Graduate Center, City University of New York

The Guinea-Bissau Constitutional Reform Debate, Watson Aila Gomes

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The enactment of law is not to be confused with the rule of law, and simply having a constitution does not guarantee political order. In Guinea-Bissau there have been calls to write a new constitution, but whether that helps Guinea-Bissau become a more stable country is questionable. Currently, there is a gap in the research of social science, history and political science examining how the processes of instability have unfolded in Guinea-Bissau. Few studies attempt to examine the correlation between a country’s stability and its constitution. A paradoxical situation exists in many countries in Africa where the political system ...


Returning To Imaginative Literary Texts In The Composition Classroom: A Case Study Of Greek Literature And Their Potential In First-Year Writing, Esther M. Gabay 2020 City University of New York (CUNY)

Returning To Imaginative Literary Texts In The Composition Classroom: A Case Study Of Greek Literature And Their Potential In First-Year Writing, Esther M. Gabay

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

The basis for the argument—a return to literature in first-year college composition—stems from a composition debate that emerged in the 90s that suggested instructors of composition refrain from using literature in their writing courses. The thesis proposes that literature, specifically Greek literature, be re-purposed and integrated back into first-year writing college courses. Chapter one contextualizes the historical debate and proposes imaginative literary texts return to first-year writing. The second chapter presents cross-disciplinary advantages, looking closely at the value of teaching literature in composition classes as a tool for building prior knowledge, developing cross-disciplinary insights and access into other ...

An Interoperative Phenomenological Analysis Of Hindu Psychologists And The Impact Of Hinduism On Their Clinical Work, Kinjal Panchal

Dissertations

This study was an exploration of spirituality, cultural upbringing, and deeply rooted Eastern philosophy and their conscious and unconscious impact on the way Hindu psychologists practice in the field. The purpose was to take into consideration the four major theories of Hinduism and to assess whether psychologists of Hindu origin integrated them into their clinical work. The study used qualitative methods, specifically interpretative phenomenological analysis, as the main strategy of inquiry for data collection and analysis. The goal was to broaden the understanding of how spiritual beliefs can inform a psychologist’s clinical approach and lead to a better understanding ...


The Velvet Glove: Virtuousness And Class In Balzac’S Paris, Nicholas C. Peters 2020 Portland State University

The Velvet Glove: Virtuousness And Class In Balzac’S Paris, Nicholas C. Peters

Anthós

This piece has attempted to select a key passage in Père Goriot, and identify textual elements in order to create a taxonomy which reveals patterns from which possibilities of meaning stem. Balzac creates this scene as a condemnation of the current state of the aristocracy, as well as the greed and ambition of the middle class which further corrupts the values and integrity of the ruling class. This essay uses textual explication to analyze the descriptions, and diction used in the chosen passage to explicate a larger meaning in the novel, as well as offering a new understanding of the ...


The Worst Thing Since Sliced Bread: The Chorleywood Bread Process, Jeremy Cherfas 2020 Independent Scholar

The Worst Thing Since Sliced Bread: The Chorleywood Bread Process, Jeremy Cherfas

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

In the 1950s, Britain’s local bakers were under siege. Large, highly automated bread factories could supply bread at a lower price, finding a ready market in the growing supermarket presence on the high street. The small bakers turned to the British Baking Industries Research Association (BBIRA), based in Chorleywood, outside London. After very few years of research, the bread scientists unveiled a method that took less time and was able to use lower-protein home-grown wheat: the Chorleywood Bread Process. If the high street bakers thought they were saved, they were sorely mistaken. The big industrial bakers adopted the same ...

‘‘Please Can We Talk About Politics Or Something Controversial, Instead Of My Stomach?’: A Communication Study Of Food Discourse And Identity Construction., Rhonda J. Stewart

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

The study of food, an integral component of culture, provides insights into our beliefs, customs, and daily life. When our lives revolve around the importance of food, how do we make sense of an interruption in that system? People with food allergies discover ways to make sense of their food allergies and learn how to communicate their stigmatized allergies to others. The reactions of non-allergic people to those with dietary restrictions have implications for allergy sufferers as well. Interviews revealed the taint perceived by food allergy sufferers and the sensemaking process they implemented to confront the taint through three distinct ...

The World’S Greatest Hero: An Examination Of Superhero Tropes In My Hero Academia, Jerry Waller 2020 The University of San Francisco

The World’S Greatest Hero: An Examination Of Superhero Tropes In My Hero Academia, Jerry Waller

Master's Projects and Capstones

In this paper the author explores the cross-cultural transmission of genre archetypes in illustrated media. Specifically, the representation of the archetype of American superheroes as represented in the Japanese manga and anime series, My Hero Academia. Through examination of the extant corpus of manga chapters and anime episodes for the franchise, the author draws comparison between characters and situations in the manga series with examples from American comic books by Marvel Comics and DC Comics. By skillfully incorporating foundational themes of American superhero comics into the shonen manga genre, My Hero Academia joins a growing collection of media that draws ...


The Darker Sides Of The Isekai Genre: An Examination Of The Power Of Anime And Manga, Curtis Lu 2020 The University of San Francisco

The Darker Sides Of The Isekai Genre: An Examination Of The Power Of Anime And Manga, Curtis Lu

Master's Projects and Capstones

This study illustrates characteristics of the isekai genre, presents connections between this genre and social problems commonly found in Japanese culture and society, and demonstrates the widespread impact of Japanese popular media. By analyzing some of the most popular forms and categories of isekai, this research pinpoints important characteristics – in the form of certain themes, characters, and plots – that contribute to social problems like suicide and shut-ins. Escapism is a central theme in many isekai works, and while escapism is healthy to a certain extent, some take the concept too far, often getting lost in their own fantasies. The genre ...


Locative Food: The Future Of Food Is A Peach, Adrian Bregazzi 2020 Independent Scholar

Locative Food: The Future Of Food Is A Peach, Adrian Bregazzi

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

Locative food releases food from the hegemony of the restaurant, its rituals, codes, performative narratives, complexities, paraphernalia, processes, and entry fees; taking food out into a wider world, to locations that function along with the food to create provocations of the senses and a way of making us discern gastronomic possibilities afresh. This paper looks at Heston Blumenthal’s Sound of the Sea as the epitome of restaurant complexity; Roland Barthes’ experiences and responses to food in Japan in the late 1960s; Kenya Hara’s concepts of design and the design ethos underpinning MUJI; a brief overview of the picnic ...


Gastronomic Myths Of Disruption, Jonathan Brumberg-Kraus 2020 Wheaton College

Gastronomic Myths Of Disruption, Jonathan Brumberg-Kraus

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

“Innovation and disruption are ideas that originated in the arena of business but which have since been applied to arenas whose values and goals are remote from the values and goals of business.” (Jill Lepore)

Stories of food have been central to concepts of disruption from the dawn of time. It’s human nature to “make lemonade out of lemons,” - to use food metaphors and stories to spin the inevitable often traumatic experiences of change naturally occurring or intentionally engineered. This year’s theme encourages contemporary gastronomic interpretations of Clayton Christiansen and others’ business theory that “disruption” is essential for ...

On Wine And Food, Together, Patricia Rogers, Marcella Giannasio 2020 Independent Scholar

On Wine And Food, Together, Patricia Rogers, Marcella Giannasio

Dublin Gastronomy Symposium

The subject of food and wine pairing in the 21st century is an animated area of discussion. Consider this comment from the University of Arkansas Hospitality Program. ‘The concepts of beverage management or wine evaluation are far from under-utilised in most hospitality programs, but other than in relatively large hospitality programs, food and wine pairing is not provided as a standalone course and is covered at a relatively cursory level in most beverage management’. (Harrington et al, 2010, p.110) It is currently topical that a cultural change in the drinking and eating styles of the millennial and gen. z ...
